Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether delivered the State of the City address Wednesday, highlighting the city's many accomplishments in 2013.
Huether began with a statement that set the tone for the entire address—"It will be hard to find a stronger city that Sioux Falls South Dakota right now."
Mayor Huether highlighted the city's record sales tax revenue, its nearly $600 million in building permits and the incredibly low unemployment rate of just 3.1 percent.
With those and other staggering statistics, Mayor Huether also noted how the City of Sioux Falls has gained national recognition over the past year.
"Number nine on its list of happiest, healthiest cities in the country. Happy is a good thing. Healthy is a good thing, and we must have figured it out because we're number nine in the country," said Huether.
Huether also said Sioux Falls' future is bright. As more jobs draw in new residents, the Sioux Falls community will crow even more in 2014.
It's why Huether ended his State of the City address saying, it's really hard to find something negative to say about our city right now.
